Summary: This is the camera my husband uses for taking pictures in our city animal shelter for the Pet Finders site, it takes a picture instantly which is important with moving targets. We had our first camera for 6 years until it got dropped and the lens broke. Found another one on e bay finally after months of checking my search results. Great camera and I wish they were still being made.
Summary: I used Sony's M-1 camera for many years until it suddenly died with no obvious means of fixing. But I liked it so much that I upgraded to the second generation M-2 model buying it used since it's no longer manufactured. I love that it fits easily in my pocket as that was always the reason I didn't take more videos if it was more awkward to haul around something larger.
Summary: I needed a point-and-shooter for my trip to Tibet. This one fit the bill and I'm happy with the result. That said, it's 2010, and the camera takes fuzzy shots, has some software glitches where I can't stop the video recorder until I flip the camera off. I guess it's hard to write a review in 2010 for a product I thought was pretty decent in 2006.
Great camera if you are not a professional Photographer

Summary: This is a great camera for someone who prefer easy to use electronics a little pricy in comparison to other items with better picture and video quality. But the disign is terrific and after playing with the camera I found that is so easy to take and review pictures and videos, that the price seems fair. So far I'm very satisfied.
Summary: THIS CAMERA WAS GREAT FOR THE 1YR AND 3 MONTHS THAT I HAD THE CAMERA IN PERFECT CONDITION. FIRST OF ALL YOU NEED TO GET A CARRYING CASE FOR IT IF NOT U ARE GONNA GO THROUGH WHAT IM GOING THRU. THE SLIDE CLICK WHEEL(fwd button) TO CHANGE PICS AND VIDEOS WHEN IN VIEWING THEM SNAPPED OFF AN BROKE ON ME.
Summary: I was so excited when I got this camera from Amazon. Why ? The looks alone - the flip out screen was cool, like a mini camcorder. It has MPEG4 with Stereo Sound which is, indeed, very cool. And, the video is great! But that was where the excitement ended. Now I'm not technical but I've had 3 digial cameras in the past so let me explain in simple terms why this camera sucks. Why does this camera suck ? It's bulky.
Summary: I can't believe they haven't made more and these are so hard to find now! I've had mine for a year now and it is awesome. Finally a handy marriage between a still camera and a video camera. Parents and grandparents everywhere I go wish they had one to catch EVERY fun moment with the kids. My only complaint is the low-light capabilities. Pictures just won't turn out and movies are terrible unless you're outside or inside with bright lights.
